By lighting candles on Saturday people remembered all the dead and injured in road accidents. This year, 119 people have died on Slovenian roads, and 740 have been seriously injured. Behind these dry statistics, which do not even touch people any more, there is so much suffering, so many tragic life stories that is almost impossible to imagine, said Director General of the Police Stanislav Veniger.
